Daily Horoscopes/Astro Highlights for each Sign:
AriesMars moves into your opposing sign and partnership sector today, dear Aries, where it will transit until October 30th. Your talents can shine through a partnership during this transit, or your relationship goals can be wonderfully motivating. There’s animation in your life through others! This cycle is about where and how you direct your energy, motivation, and assertiveness, and it puts a strong emphasis on teaming or pairing up to get things done. It can be an animated time for partnerships and close relationships, and it might be a little disruptive before things get better. Mars is direct and to the point, and as it moves through a sector of relationships, those things that have been blocked, hidden, or buried are not easy to tolerate. There may be a competitive feeling in a relationship, or you could seem to need the encouragement of someone to take action. It’s not the ideal position for your fiery ruler, energetically speaking, as you might often feel as if the ball is in another’s court. However, this can also be a time for taking a break from making every single decision, and you may very well need this now. The Moon heads to the top of your solar chart today, encouraging you to set goals or check in with current ones.
TaurusFiery, confident, competitive Mars begins its transit of your work and health sector today, dear Taurus. Until October 30th, you enjoy increased motivation, energy, and courage for your work, daily life, routines, or health pursuits. There can be more competitiveness in or at your work, which can be motivating or frustrating, and perhaps a bit of both! Establishing a more independent pace, if you can manage it, can help. It may be that you need extra stimulation, or you want to pioneer something and go your own way with your work or health pursuits. You’re ready to take action for self-improvement! With the Moon moving into harmony with your sign today, you’re feeling more energetic and expressive.
GeminiYour social life speeds up with Mars moving into your solar fifth house today, dear Gemini. This transit, lasting until October 30th, supports energy levels, courage, self-assertion, and confidence. With Mars animating your sector of joy, heart, creativity, and leisure, you are in perfect shape to pursue your heart’s desire with confidence. A direct approach works best with this transit, but there can be times when you may need to check yourself if you’re too impatient or presumptuous. For the most, however, this gives you a fantastic boost and encourages you to throw yourself into activities you genuinely enjoy. You’re more engaged and spirited.
CancerWith Mars moving into your home and family sector today, dear Cancer, aim to honor your need for more time to yourself or time spent at home, but watch for defensiveness with others. Fortunately, you may get to the root of any lingering problems with family during this transit. As well, you can bring more energy and initiative to home-related projects. This Mars transit lasts until October 30th. This planet is fiery and direct! Its influence on your solar fourth house can bring animation, energy, and dynamism to your home environment, sense of personal growth, and family relationships. It can undoubtedly stir things up! Still, while a direct approach to problem areas may feel disruptive, it can lead to quicker resolutions to long-standing problems with loved ones, roommates, family, or home-related matters. During this cycle, you can be more protective of others (and yourself), which can benefit you in moderation. Today, the Moon’s move into your partnership sector points to an increased desire for companionship.
LeoMars moves into your communications sector today, dear Leo, stirring your desire to learn and explore. While this can be a busy time for communicating, connecting, and commuting, watch for impatience as you make your way around and express yourself. You’re inclined to pour tremendous energy into your interests, projects, and studies, and you’re more ambitious and determined. It’s a beautiful time to push yourself a little, as long as you respect your need for rest and healthy living. This supportive transit sticks with you until October 30th. You’ll connect with your natural motivation for taking the initiative or pioneering projects, studies, and teachings during this cycle. You’re also inclined to initiate communications or reach out to others, more so than usual, although you can also be less interested in teaming up since you prefer to set your own pace. You can also be more passionate about your ideas, plans, and projects.
VirgoMars moves out of your sign and into your resources sector today, dear Virgo, boosting your desire to live with more security and comfort. You’re motivated to take action to improve your current circumstances during this transit that will last through most of October. You more readily identify sources of waste or fear and take steps to put them behind you. You now direct more energy into business endeavors and seeking material security. The drive to improve your resources is strong, but there can also be some tensions surrounding personal finances and possessions when Mars is under strain or challenge. Action with money matters or belongings is a theme in the weeks ahead. The Moon heads into your sector of joy and pleasure today, however, encouraging the need to enjoy and express yourself.
LibraMars moves into your sign today, dear Libra, bringing positive energy and increased charisma, courage, energy, and confidence to pursue your goals. You may not be entirely clear about which direction to head until after the Sun enters your sign on the 22nd. However, this Mars transit, lasting until October 30th, is a real blast of energy and motivation. Your desire for independence comes full-on. It’s an energizing, direct, and fiery influence, although it can sometimes be impatient and combative if you’re unsure what to do with all of its excess energy! Managed well, it can be a rewarding time for going after what you want directly, assertively, and confidently. You are more decisive and perhaps bold. While you can be a little self-interested, it can be useful in moderation, and it can also be a time when a partner is in your corner.
ScorpioMars heads into your soul sector today, dear Scorpio, and a period of transformations and renovations, mainly on an emotional level, is ahead of you. It’s a time for strong signals from your subconscious, spurring you on and pointing your attention to problems that you may have overlooked or buried. You may feel a little less energetic as your priorities shuffle around, but redirecting your energies into tying up loose ends can do wonders for your mood. This transit lasts until October 30th, when Mars will enter Scorpio. Until then, you’re in a recuperative cycle. While Venus has just recently entered your sign, giving you more approachability, Mars is now undercover, and there can be important behind-the-scenes activity in the weeks ahead. This transit brings more attention to those things that have run their course or that need to change significantly before you move forward. You may not be as clear or confident about your next step. Still, this apparent slowdown is, in fact, a strong time for recharging your batteries, putting bad situations behind you, and reassessing specific projects and plans. It’s an important cycle for recalibration and a vital period for getting extra rest and time to understand your desires and goals.
SagittariusThe liveliness Mars energies bring to friendships beginning today may be quite welcome, dear Sagittarius. Mars heads into your social sector for a transit that lasts until October 30th. It leaves your career and status sector, reducing pressure in these areas. This transit fires up and encourages you in the areas of wishes, hopes, aspirations, ideals, community, friends, and groups. You may take the initiative socially or work energetically towards cherished causes or dreams. Asserting yourself feels more comfortable and natural. Watch, however, for the drama level to rise too high. Troubles with friends or groups may emerge when Mars is under strain here, but this can help get problem areas out into the open for handling. Overall, it’s a good time of satisfying experimentation, presenting an excellent opportunity to explore what you’re doing to keep yourself happy, connected, and engaged.
CapricornMars moves into your career sector today, dear Capricorn, firing up ambitions, and it will stick around there until almost the end of October. You’ll be building momentum and more wholeheartedly pursuing your career and life path goals during this cycle. Your ambition is burning bright, and you’re pushing a little harder. This transit can sometimes stimulate conflicts, particularly with those in charge, but it’s also a time of more courage and drive to improve, perform, and excel. You’re likely to have less patience for idling and more energy for making things happen. You also want things to run your way! The Moon moves into your sign today, stirring up all sorts of colorful emotions.
AquariusMars moves into your spirit sector today, dear Aquarius, bringing excellent energy for breaking out of routines and enjoying yourself more fully. New adventures and experiences can suddenly seem desirable after a period of being quite content following simple practices or sticking close to home. You feel incredibly passionate about your ideas in the weeks ahead. If life has been feeling a little stale recently, this is the boost or reinvigoration you need! Mars will transit this area of your solar chart until October 30th, and it’s moving in harmony with your sign, enhancing your energy and motivation levels. Your efforts and actions feel supported by others and by the universe. Enthusiasm is high and building now. If it pleases you, you can motivate and inspire others to take action, but you are also quite content to do your own thing during this cycle.
PiscesMars enters your intimacy sector today, dear Pisces, where this planet of courage and action will transit until October 30th. It can be a fabulous cycle for taking action in your intimate life and reaching out to others for support or assistance, financially or emotionally. This period turns the heat up on the more intricate elements of relating. And, if there have been complicated dynamics in a partnership, this can be the time to address them. It can also be a robust period for throwing your energy into an important project, research, or investigation — anything or anyone that requires commitment, heart, and focus. You can be motivated and energized by a pet project or cause that absorbs your attention. Long-term planning and strategy appeal more than usual. Today, the Moon moves into your social sector, encouraging you to connect with people or projects that inspire you.
